FG, Labour to review minimum wage

Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), President Ayuba Wabba, says the federal government and the organised labour movement in the country have reached a consensus to review the national minimum wage.

Wabba, who disclosed this in an interview with newsmen in Abuja, said that the consensus was reached during the sitting of the technical committee on palliative.

He said the committee was meant to look into the framework to ameliorate the sufferings of Nigerians and cushion the effect of the increase in the price of fuel.

The NLC President said that labour was hopeful that the minimum wage committee would be constituted soon.

It would be recall that the labour unions had submitted a proposal to the government demanding for N56,000 as minimum wage.
